Hey y'all! I'm finally able to draw again and I've jumped head first back into Japanese anime fandom! 

In May I had to undergo a third spinal surgery, this time a Fusion with titanium rods screwed into my vertebrae and a titanium cage put in with bone grafts. It's been almost 8 weeks since and I'm feeling better than I have in at least 7 years... My presence on here and my ability to sit and draw went downhill over the years as it was difficult to concentrate through pain. 

I really hope to get going again on here, and will try to post at least once a week even if it's just sketches!

Here's some Hiruma and Mamori sketches from Eyeshield 21, a comic about American football in Japan. It's one of my most favorite stories ever!

And here's a reminder of some of the art I did in the past from this series: 
Touchdown... by kara-lija This Ain't A Scene... by kara-lija Sanctuaries... by kara-lija Sugar We're Goin' Down by kara-lija ..:After the Fall:.. by kara-lija ...Enchantment... by kara-lija The Devil's Weakness by kara-lija 


I'm also going to draw art for The Seven Deadly Sins series. Ban has stolen my fangirl heart 💕

I am a fan artist of most subcultures, but I mainly draw from books and anime. This Deviant account is for my fanart and a lil' bit of my photography.

Hey!! I thought you would absolutely adore this theme:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=E52rxz…
It is about a dryad living in a willow and a young man who's fallen in love with her but she refuses him.  
I thought it might be a great inspiration for your art. :)

P.S. You're awesome! Never stop drawing! *_*

I was taking a nostalgic trek through my old faves and realized how much I missed your art/interacting with you. Hope your surgery went well, and funny fail!story: I was totally in Mobile for an... extended period of time a little over a year ago and totally should have said hello.

Hope all is well and that you're back on the art track soon!

Ha! You turd!  You should've gotten in touch with me!  We could've hung out on the beach and drank some daiquiri's!!  And talked nerd stuff, of course.  :D  I miss you, and how involved I used to be on this site... and I hate that Real Life has been fighting me tooth and nail against my getting artwork finished.  Between family/kids, health issues, work, and the worst effing artist block I've ever had, I get like, 2 pieces finished a year.  It sucks. :/ 
   I hope all is well with your life.  It's great to hear from you! What fandoms are you immersed in now?  I'm completely and hopelessly obsessed with Doctor Who, and David Tennant in general.  I got to meet him back in March!  He said my name in his Scottish brogue and I thought I was gonna melt.  Or jump him.  But I had my kids with me and so I thought of the children.  Sadly. Lol.

 Stay in touch and if you ever head my way again, hollaaaaa at me!

Oh, ladyfriend, that would have been awesome. I'm seriously kicking myself for not getting a hold of you. If I'm ever around those parts again, I will wave flags and fire flares and send smoke signals.

Real life is the pits when it comes to wanting to nerd out, huh? But it sounds like you're living a pretty fulfilling life, though, so I guess it's not all bad.  c: I'm back over in Japan again for a couple of years, so my friends joke that I'm basically living out my own anime. Can't quite disagree with that; life is an adventure. Work sucks, though.

As far as fandoms go, I can only seem to find time to watch those short, one-season anime (although I'm a slut for some BBC Sherlock). Kill-la-Kill, Attack on Titan, a revival of interest in Samurai Champloo (OT3 at its finest), and then basically kicking it in all my old fandoms. I recently got into One Piece, though. Never held a flame for me, but my boyfriend made me watch it and now I think it's adorable. I got him hopelessly obsessed with Once Upon a Time, though, so all's fair in love and war. I still read Bleach, but only because Grimmjow is back. I pretty much hate everything else about it.

Uhm, speaking of Bleach, I sort of wrote a fanfic. That's based off that GrimmHime fanart you did ages ago. The chapters are even titled after NIN lyrics from "We're in this Together Now". You're even mentioned in the A/N because, well, inspiration and all that. *bites lip* eheheheheheheh...

Keep in touch!!!  xoxo

Do you have tumblr? So I can reblog your art. If not, would it be okay for me to post your art with the right credit on my Malec one?
